Service Description

An ideal sport for all dogs! Can start as puppies as it's ideal to hold confidence Reactive dogs welcome and encouraged as it's a safe sport for them to join in with Older dogs enjoy it too as it's low impact on joints A must for high energy dogs as it's tiring on the brain Train your dog to find people using their nose. The dogs absolutely love it and so do the owners. No prior training needed and any dog can join us. It is perfect for older less mobile dogs as it's all done at the dogs pace. 100% inclusive regardless of temperament and training ability. In order to ensure you have a positive and enjoyable experience Mantrailing please refer to the list below (This is a guide and you may not need everything) Your dog must wear their own harness for trailing but I can supply a longline for you if you don’t have one. A guide For You Sensible out door clothes and walking boots /shoes, wellies are sometimes required if grass is very wet. Waterproofs and warm clothing, nothing fancy as dog’s do jump up and being cold is horrible Refreshments ie flask with hot drink/cold drinks and a camp chair if you wish Gloves (cycling/gym/sailing gloves are good if you have them for strong pulling dogs) For your dog Water and a bowl Really good food rewards (see below) Harness (don’t put on until instructed) if your dog wears a harness all the time leave normal lead attached If you have a long line, ideally 10m, please bring (spares are available to borrow) Make sure your dog is wearing a collar and ID tag Other Poo bags - please take home with you, may be no bin at venue Small lidded containers eg. Tupperware - 2 per trail: either refill for 2nd and 3rd from a main pot and make sure your dog’s nose fits in. Crate for car, or whatever you need to keep your dog safe in the car between trails as they will sit in the car while others are working Car cover or blanket to keep your car shaded if the weather is hot Scent Article (glove, scarf, jumper ect) please note the article will be on the ground so you can put them in food plastic bag.
